IdeaNova Technologies Name to Shortlist in Crystal Cabin Awards for Inplay IFE Portal

Winners to be announced at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg Germany

NAPERVILLE, IL – January 24, 2020 -IdeaNova Technologies is a finalist for the Crystal Cabin Awards in the “In-flight Entertainment and Connectivity” category for their Inplay IFE Portal. The Crystal Cabin Award is the aircraft interior sector’s most highly regarded award celebrating innovation in re-inventing the way airplane cabins offer comfort and entertainment to passengers. This year’s award saw the most entries ever received since it began in 2007.

The Inplay IFE Portal offers airline passengers the ability to download and set their watchlist before getting onto the aircraft, even while they are at home. The player includes feature rich entertainment options such as ad-based video on demand, live TV, and games. In response to the airlines offering economy tickets that may split groups, the IdeaNova team included an integrated chat feature within the portal to keep people connected on the flight. The Inplay IFE Portal bridges user experience with robust security demanded by content providers in today’s security-conscious market. All Inplay components (including Microsoft PlayReady DRM) run on Linux, allowing an easier integration process for airlines.

“I owe a sincere thanks to our IdeaNova team to whom I am most grateful,” IdeaNova founder and CEO Juraj Siska said. “Many of our employees have worked and witnessed building every component of the Inplay platform from the ground up with countless hours spent and revisions made before reaching this stage of our product. We are excited about the future and eager to see the benefits we bring to inflight entertainment and passengers around the world.”

Winners of the Crystal Cabin Award will be announced at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany on March 31, 2020.
